Intended Audience: Developmental Services Case Managers, Crisis Team Members, & Provider Agency Staff

These three topics are combined within a single training session and
give participants the chance to talk about real situations. Participants
will be introduced to 34-B MRSA 5601-5610, which describes the rights
of Maine citizens with intellectual disabilities and/or autism. Any
professionals supporting individuals with intellectual disabilities or
autism spectrum disorders must help their consumers to understand these
rights. Professionals are also obligated to see that the rights of their
clients are honored. You may find it helpful to review 34-B prior to
the workshop at: http://legislature.maine.gov/legis/statutes/34-B/title34-Bch5sec0.html.

These regulations govern the use of emergency interventions and behavioral treatment in a manner consistent with maximizing the safety, well-being, independence, and inclusion of Maine citizens with intellectual disabilities or autism.
